    I'm really interested in becoming a civil engineer but i would want to know more about it. was it hard to find a job after graduation ? How does your work environment look like in a day? What are the least/ most rewarding things about being an engineer? What do you consider the qualities that define a successful engineer?

    Hello! I am quite interested in civil engineering. I read a lot about how young women are highly sought in engineering but I was wondering what about when i get old? In 40's or 50's ? Would I have just as equal opportunities as men? Thank you :)

    Hi Tenzin,
    
    Thank you for the question.
    
    Women have equal opportunities today. There's no inherent issue being a woman in engineering today, and it does not matter how old you are.

    Hi, I'm currently at university studying for a business degree but i have realised that this is not my passion and not a field I see myself in in the future. I have always been interested in architecture and want to pursue a degree in civil engineering but i have not done physics in high school and realise that I am at a disadvantage but have the necessary maths skills to qualify. If I took the necessary bridging courses to catch up with physics, would I be able to undertake civil? Thanks

    My 16 year old daughter adores math and engineering, and wants to be either a nuclear engineer, or a civil engineer. However, she is also a very, very girly girl who loves high heels, glitter, wearing pink, party dresses, and, well, just think Engineer Barbie, or Legally Blonde. She has been told that she will need to tone it down (a lot) if she plans to be taken seriously in engineering. Is it really that important that she subsume that part of her personality in order for her to pursue her ...

    Hi Jean, thanks for your question. The general answer is that you can let your personality shine, whatever your outfit looks like. I love color too; as I write this, my top is bright orange, bright pink, and black.

    You have to remember that ...

    Hello, I am an architectural intern who is about to take the Architect Registration Exams. I am interested in working for a structural engineer to gain insight into how an engineer works and how to better work with engineers in the future as an Architect. As engineers, have you had employees with architectural backgrounds? What skills should I highlight that would be the most beneficial for an engineering office? Thank you.

    Hi Jena, Before I answer your question, I suggest that you consider the impact on your ability to get your architecture license. Now, I work in New York, so you should definitely check the requirements in Arizona, since different states can have very ...
